    I was trying to locate Bernie as he was in my class at John Swaney High School in McNabb, Illinois. We were having a class reunion. I am sorry to hear that he has passed on. I am sure I have the correct person. I was looking for more obituary of his family as faces change through the years.

    Thank you Bernie for taking a young Airman under your wing at Sheppard AFB in 1964. I have never forgotten your lessons for life.
